Selling Food at Yard sales, pt 2

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
WHAT A SUCCESS! I read the majority of those responded and boy am I glad! Next year, I'm only selling food. No more stuff for sale - I'll donate it and make more money (or claim more on taxes) then I ever will yard saleing it!

We sold hot dogs for .50/each - we had 100 and it cost approx. 14.69 for supplies.....we sold out by 1030. All baked goods were gone in a flash - easy easy easy!!! Over all our sale made 398 dollars - over 200 of that was food.

I couldnt give away clothes for .10 but people were asking for food that as sold out!

Thanks for the input ladies!

holy crap! I'd do it every weekend at that profit!!!!!!!

I know those hotdog stands make MAD money - we would do one every single year for Girl Scouts (when I was a scout) and we made so much money it was crazy. It was pure profit for us, because we got all the food donated from the store we sat out front of (being that we were non-profit). And it was really fun to do.

I think one of the perks to having food at your sale is that many of us that go yard saling are STARVING come 8-9am!! Or atleast I am. If someone sells cookies or even hot dogs I grab a few! So I can see how that would be a success!Awesome Job!
